Tuesday I have a date with a friend to make a run to Arthur for peaches and to stop at the cabinet outlet. I love going to visit the farm country — it makes me a wee bit nostaligic for farm life, although I don’t miss the stench and the filth that can be associated with it.
Why is fruit in season in the hottest part of the year so that one must have several burners of the stove turned on when it is 99 F and one is struggling to keep one’s home air conditioned to a balmy temp? Why can’t peaches and pears ripen in, say . . . December? or January?
***PS — This post is getting more traffic than anything here . . . if you are looking for instructions for canning peaches, check out my more recent entry here. Enjoy the canning season!
